For those of you who have always wanted a pure and culturally untamed experience, then the Carriacou Maroon and Music Festival is definitely the event for you! Maroon culture is about thanksgiving and prayers to the source of all life, production and prosperity. Its African origins are authentically depicted through the drumming, singing, eating of ‘smoke food’ and other rituals practised in the unique Carriacou way by its people.
Sample the taste of this traditional smoked food, enjoy performances from various Caribbean islands and come out with the family for an evening of fun, games and pure entertainment. Move to the vibrations of the heavy drumming and groove to the sweet sounds of string band music from Carriacou’s popular musicians. Come enjoy string bands, smoked food, drums and dance. Three days, three venues but one festival. As we say, once you have experienced the Carriacou Maroon and String Band Music Festival, your life will never be the same!
